"Red Bird" © Saundra Lane Galloway

"Red Bird"
4x4"  Oil on 1/2" wide Fiberboard Panel
Slots on back for hanging
Stained on sides for sitting...:)

The last couple of days have been pretty busy with school AND trying to paint.  I knew the first few days back subbing full time would be a bit hectic as I'm trying to come in right in the middle of projects and pick up with the permanent teacher's brain!  The kids are great, but it is still an adjustment for us all!  I'm happy to report the baby DID come and mother and Zoe are doing excellent!!

I did have a few minutes at lunch to paint this little red bird that I snapped a couple of summers ago while sitting in my mother's beautiful back yard.  I've always thought this little one was so pretty.  He was puffed up as he was trying to catch a bath in the sprinkler that was hitting the tree.  Such a sweetie!  I put this in MY ETSY store, but it is also available as a contest choice as long as it stays available. 

So, I'm now off to re-mix some clothing for school...the grey sweater I posted a little bit ago is first on the list...

Spring Break is next week, so I already have a break to paint and play!!

HAPPY SATURDAY CREATING!!

Look at those gorgeous brush strokes! A wonderful little piece, Saundra. I love cardinals; those and bluejays have to be my favorite looking wild birds.

I really love birds I've learned!! However...when I got home from church i realized I hadn't highlighted this little guy's eyes...I corrected that...but how funny to walk in after church and realize this!! sigh!

That happened to me on a portrait I did where the man had a bird on his shoulder. I had the eye space in there; just hadn't applied color! And as an update, I think my lack of ability is coming through on my paper cast 'masterpiece.' I have a feeling it isn't going to end up as I had hoped. Sigh...Then again...I can always buy more! Next time, I intend to use them as the canvas themselves, and on the flip (smooth) side. Hmmm...I do still have that side of these if I mess up the natural side...

That is correct! AND, don't forget you can gesso over them. As long as you don't change the shape you are fine!! :) Hang in there!!
